When Trick-or-Treaters ring my bell on Halloween, rather than give them more candy, I like to give them a different type of TREAT! A hand made coloring book (Assuming that they are under the age of 10!)
Step 1: Supplies
The supplies are very simple, however, you do need access to a Xerox machine.
Drawing paper (8.5X7)
stack of legal size paper
Step 2: Drawings
With a pencil draw your images
Step 3: Sharpie
Then go over the pencil lines with sharpie markers to make your image bold.
Step 4: Finished Drawings
All drawings are finished, I made 10
Step 8: Cover
Step 12: End Page
Step 13: Mount Drawings
When all drawings are finished mount them on standard size xerox paper.
Step 14: Make Copies
make xerox copies on Legal size paper
Step 15: Fold and Staple
Fold pages in half and staple down the spine. Several blank pages at the end of the book provide space for the trick-or-treaters to create their own drawings.
